Futaba T7CP and Corona DIY module

Hi all.
Just a quick question , I have installed a DIY Corona module into my Futaba T7CP and use 6 and 8 channel receivers in all my Aircraft and have had 9 months of gliche free flying .
After a good days flying yesterday and packing all my planes into my van I noticed that in my flight box My Futaba TX was still switched on , maybe I had forgot to switch off after my last flight which was around 30 mins ago . Do you think my rf module would be damaged due to no signal being picked up , the reason I ask is that last year my old futaba T6EXAP was left on for a whole day ( while at work ) and that damaged the rf output as I had no range the next flight I did and lost a plane ( by the way that now has a Corona DIY module installed and works great ) I have ask the question in Google and cant find an answer , Anybody know????
Thanks in Advance , Ian

No the module has no way of knowing if its signal is being received and the reception or otherwise of its signal will in no way affect it.
Your old futaba T6EXAP could have been damaged because the aerial was not extended not loading the circuit correctly.
A 2.4 GHz transmitter always has its aerial extended.
